New Cars That Will Last 250K Miles

September 24, 2015

If you're the type of person who buys a new car and drives it until the wheels fall off, then this is for you. Forbes recently released a list of what they consider the 10 most-likely vehicles that will keep on running for over 250,000 miles.

Forbes analyzed reliability ratings and looked into common problem areas on vehicles 10 years old and newer. Vehicles on the list include the Scion xB, Toyota Camry, Subaru Forester, and Mazda Mazda6. Below is the full list.

And if you're considering any of these long-lasting vehicles, don't forget to use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the best prices being offered by local dealers.

TrueCar and Edmunds are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
